it's all Greek to me


Here's a button I made...

after I saw the MIT Stitch'n'Bitch's Olympic button featured right ---->

Mine is as close to correct Greek as I could manage, and yes I did talk with David, another Classics student, and one of my Professors before making it. The real problem is that knitting wasn't invented until Coptic Egypt at the earliest, so the ancient Greeks didn't have a word for it. Thus, I used apagkuloo - "to make a loop with rope", as it was as close as I could find ;)
